French Actresses of the 18th Century

I recently bought this fantastic book from a guy in Belgium. It’s about French actresses of the 18th century. As a book it is quite high-end and special as each page is printed on thick artist’s paper. The edges are deckled and not trimmed, and the book is case bound.

Each section in the book, and there are many, is a feature on an actress, and each section begins with a beautiful engraving portrait. The portraits are printed to be ready to frame, and the whole book is part of a numbered limited edition.

The book cost only about $50, so I think I have a real bargain there. I can’t wait to start framing some of the images. Some are below…
